Tresinwen & Strumble (10 Mar 13)

Brrrr !

All of yesterday's spring migrants have gone to ground - no sign today.  Also no sign of Siskins in the garden.  Only consistent birds to yesterday were the Redwings by the house - now up to 26 birds.  I think they will hang around a bit longer given the forecast for this week!

My first garden first of the year - 2 Greylag Geese.  They flew in off the sea by the sea-watch lookout then along the coast Westwards past the lighthouse.  They then headed inland up Richard's valley, turned over Tresinwen and have now settled in fields between the house and the old coastguard lookout.  They appear to be a pair.
